Holiday String Art
String art is a wildly popular DIY decor idea right now and for a good reason. It’s simple, the color combinations are endless, and it can be easily modified for any season or event. Just be sure to pick the right size of nail to sink into the wood and leave enough space between the nails for several layers of embroidery thread or string. And print out or trace an outline to use as a guide or draw your design freehand directly on the wood.

Spell it Out
Lighted garland isn’t the only way to decorate a bannister for the holidays. These Christmas bundles can easily be made by foraging for twigs, sticks and greenery in your yard and neighborhood and tying everything together with bright ribbon and a few ornaments for good measure. And best of all, the handrail remains free of decorations which is an integral part of home safety.
Front Door Decor
There’s something about a decorated front door at Christmas that beckons visitors in for a warm visit. And this DIY decor idea suggests you think beyond the traditional pot of pine tree tops to create a uniquely themed montage to the holidays. Breathe new life into an old wagon, for example, for a perfect starting point. The rest is up to your imagination
